    BJP to reach out to Muslim women on Triple Talaq, Article 370

    Synopsis

    The Mahila Morcha of the ruling party has been tasked with addressing these gatherings and mobilising women on these two “subjects”.

    While the Mahila Morcha will address gatherings in Jammu and Akrur in Kashmir, meetings of booth-level workers and women have been planned in Hyderabad, Bengaluru and in Gujarat later this month.
    New Delhi: In a bid to extend its outreach among Muslim women, BJP is looking at addressing district-level gatherings and public meetings in three to four states this month on abrogation of Section 370 and the Triple Talaq Bill.

    According to senior party functionaries, the Mahila Morcha of the ruling party has been tasked with addressing these gatherings and mobilising women on these two “subjects”.

    "Both Triple Talaq Bill and revoking of Section 370 were done through consistent efforts of the government. These are landmark achievements for our efforts to bring justice to Muslim women," a party functionary said.

    While the Mahila Morcha will address gatherings in Jammu and Akrur in Kashmir, meetings of booth-level workers and women have been planned in Hyderabad, Bengaluru and in Gujarat later this month.

    The Mahila Morcha has also been tasked with strengthening the party's presence and spreading information about both the decisions among women voters in West Bengal, which is expected to go to assembly polls in 2021.

    “The removal of Section 370 has been major for the welfare of women in Kashmir. They will be able to have rights over property and an opportunity for economic independence. Certain laws such as the Right To Education Act will now be implementable in Kashmir," a party functionary said. On Triple Talaq, the outreach involves spreading information about the law among the local police stations and women.

    “We have roughly got over 300 cases from UP, Jharkhand, Maharashtra and Hyderabad,” said a BJP source.
